Since the Nabooian Domesticated Milk issue has been addressed already, I thought I'd try to answer the question for the other domesticated mobs, in general. Aside from Naboo, the answer is yes. It can be tricky, though. For example, in my experiences on Tatooine, the only missions that spawn the dwarf banthas (the only ones that drop domesticated milk) are bull bantha lair missions, and even then, not every bull bantha lair mission has them. I basically take one, ride out to it, and only keep it if it has a dwarf bantha up on the initial spawn - even better if it has two (if it doesn't have one at the beginning, it never will.*) With the kahmurras on Talus, I didn't write it down for some reason, but I seem to recall that the ones that spawn docile versions are the missions that aren't called "mutated". Endor and Dantooine are significantly easier.

*Caveat being, as I posted earlier, if you still have the mission after a server soft or hard reset, sometimes the initial spawn will shift - for the better or for the worse.

I'd like to add something to this:

Actually, I think milking is some work, but it isnt really hard to do if you know 2 things about milking:
  1. The process itself

    The milking process isnt random. It is based on 7 second circles. So, you can start milking and start counting, follow a moving creature and if you are next to it after 6 seconds, just stop and wait for the "continue milking"... the point is, the check is about YOU moving, not the creature. So, if you know the beast is moving, you can go ahead a bit and let it pass you right when the 7 seconds are over... you will continue milking that even if the creature is still moving... you just have to keep up before the next 7 seconds are over.

    The Exceptional Milking skills simply cuts the process down from 3 circles (21 seconds) to 1 (7 seconds).
  2. How to root creatures

    There is a really simple trick to root creatures for milking. You just have to attack them. My tactic is normally:
    • shoot at the lair to trigger the 2nd wave (makes around 20 creatures in total if you have a greater group)
    • run away and wait for the complete 2nd wave.
    • go to the lair, attack it again
    • wait for all creatures to attack you and launch a AoE (as a commando, I use a mine)
    • let them incap you
    After this, they will scatter again to their original positions but in most cases dont move anymore. Then you have like 20 creatures for easy milking.
As proof, I am not a patient grinder and I have 170k of a single high quality milk spawn... so, I think it is harder than hide or meat, but doable.

Just wanted to add that Starshine Surprise
  1. adds to milking
  2. roots the creature
  3. increases chance for exceptional milk
And yes, this is necroing --- of a guide :D

Another thing that gives most of the same benefits of Starshine Surprise, and stacks with it, is the ability you get from completing the exceptional milk collection. Using just the bounce back and forth between 2-3 missions method I was able to get 170k milk in one hour, and this was while I was trying to complete the collection. The only thing Starshine Surprise does that the ability doesn't is increase the amount of milk harvested per creature.

This is not correct, the second thing it does is to root the creature so it is the easier to milk.
The third is to increase the exceptional chance, until you have filled the collection ;)

Thanks for all the information on milking it has been a great help to a returning player. I do have a few additional questions or maybe observation.

I was chasing milk on endor recently and was spawning the bolle bol I think it was. First point the strategy works perfectly, I was using starshine surprise for the buff and getting good milk quantities however on the second spawn nothing, no milk, no message about not being able to milk the creatures. Only thing I see is the message that they are two far away to milk when they wander off. So after a while of spawning more lairs and nothing happening I give up for the night. Now I do play with about 200-300ms latency and I notice I am well behind the action at time but with 4 tries on different lairs and they were all in the same direction I am left pondering. I was awake enough to make sure there were females and calves in the spawn and these were what I was working on.

Its good milk so I try again the next night and this time I get milk from more that the first spawn but the paralyzing effect fails on every single one. Talk about bad random rolls and I am wearing part of my RE luck suit at the time. Got caught up in the great server shutdown after that so I am keen to have another go when the servers finally come back.

Is milk effected like other creature resource by the invisible quality areas on the map or did I just fall foul of some bug ? As in you can get zero milk from creatures that normally do give milk.

Has it ever been proposed that traders get a creature resource quality survey tool ?

Does luck have an effect on the paralyze roll ?

Can my combat alt I drag around with me milk as well or is it a trader only ability. Can we both get milk from the same creature ?
